A mother is holding her young baby while he is caressing her face in an intimate scene of the mother and child relationship, where feelings are transmitted with the gaze and the baby’s hands.
Decoratively speaking, especially noteworthy are the green enamels used for the decoration of the mother’s clothes, with unusual tones for the Lladró palette. The love and affection we receive in our infancy sustain and nurture us throughout our lives. Full of life and tenderness, this sculpture makes us part of the special bond which unites mother and child. The rounded forms coupled with the light and playful nature of the composition capture the beauty and harmony of the maternity.
